New York, August 1, 1871. 

Dear Kinsfolk: 

I present iu this volume the result of long and arduous labor. When 
a boy, I came across a manuscript diagram, or tree, which was made by 
Elijah (696), and which interested me so much that I made additions to 
it, and, in 1848, published a genealogical chart of the family. That pub- 
lication had the eflect of awakening some interest in our family history, 
and I have since that time been more or less engaged, when opportunity 
has ofl'ered, in making collections and obtaining the requisite facts and 
data, hoping to put them into other hands for publication. Failing in this 
latter point, I have myself proceeded with the labor of getting the work 
through the press. In securing tasteful and accurate typography, much 
credit is due to the printers, Messrs. Alfred Mudge & Son, of Boston. 
I have been conscientiously careful that the whole should be correct and 
reliable, and to insert nothing as fact that is not well authenticated. 

Errors have undoubtedly occurred in repeatedly transcribing, and 
otherwise ; and any one who may discover any incorrectness, of any kind, 
is requested to inform me, so that a leaf of such corrections may be 
printed, which will be sent to each subscriber. And, furthermore, I shaU 
always be pleased to receive additional accounts, which may at some time 
be published as supplementary to the present volume. It is possible, if 
leisure should occur, that I may hereafter have a chart or genealogical 
tree prepared and printed, having barely the names, arranged to show all 
the connections at a glance. 

My correspondents and helpers have been so numerous that I must 
thank them all together, but as heartily as though it were done singly 
and by name. 

I have faith that these records will be prized by the generations to 
come; and I also trust that their influence and tendency will be only 
for good. 

Respectfully, 

EDWAED H. FLETCHEE.

IKTKODUCTIOK. 



A GENEALOGY ill book form cannot be so quickly understood as 
in a diagram or tree ; but a little examination will render it intelli- 
gible. In this volume every name has its number placed at the 
left, and each one which has a jplus mark, thus -|-5 on the right, 
reciu-s again in capital letters, with the same number it bore first, 
placed in parenthesis on the right. The plan here adopted con- 
templates the grouping of the members of the respective branches^ 
each branch starting from the foui-th generation. 

Part I. comprises four generations, which are all the Fletchers 
known to have been in America before the year 1700, except the 
following : — 

Moses Fletcher came in the " Mayflower," and died in a few 
months, unmarried. 

Edward Fletcher, of Boston ; cutler by /trade ; admitted towns- 
man, member of church, and freeman in 1^40. Probate overseer ; 
became a preacher, and preached at Dover, N. H. ; went back to 
England, and had a living (says Calamy, II. 330) at Dunsburn, 
from whence he was ejected, and he then came again to Boston. 
In his will, February, 1660, he mentions no children, and probably 
had none. [^Savage^s Gen. Diet.'] 

Joseph, Miles, and Ludo^ack Fletcher, are found among immi- 
grants to Virginia in 1635. 

John Fletcher, of Wethersfield, m. before 1641, Mary, dan. of 
widow Joyce Ward. Removed to Milford, and joined the church 
1641, after li\dng there two years. He died Apr. 18, 1662. His 
children were : Sarah, christened 1641 ; Hannah, chr. 1643 ; Eliza- 
beth, chr. 1645 ; Samuel, chr. 1649, died young ; Abigail, chi-. 1652, 
and thus leaving no male issue. [^Savage's Gen. Diet.'] 



6 INTBODUCTION. 

Joseph Fletcher, of Salisbury, Ms., was probably an immigrant. 
It is recorded, May 18, 1653, " Josep Fletcher servant to William 
Hall of Salisbury is exempted from any presse this summer, being 
the chief stay of his [Hall's] family." He married June 18, 1660, 
and was then twenty-four years old, and a farmer. They had a 
daughter, Mary, born April 9, 1662, who died Jan. 23, 1683. He 
died March 15, 1700, and his wife thi^ee days- previous. 

Col. Benjamin Fletcher, governor of New York, 1693 ; left no 
children in this country. 

Seth Fletcher was a minister in Wells, Me., 1656, where he mar- 
ried Mary, daughter of Major Bryan Pendleton, 1665; removed 
to Saco, Me., and was there in 1674 ; removed to Elizabeth, N. J., 
where he was settled, and where he died Aug. 1682. His estate 
was valued £559. 5s. He had only one son, Pendleton. 

Pendleton Fletcher, last named, was born 1666, and when four- 
teen years old, was adopted by his grandfather. Major Bryan Pen- 
dleton. He married Sarah, daughter of Eoger Hill, and had 
several children, whose names are unknown. He was captured by 
the Indians in 1697, and earned prisoner to Canada, where he died 
in captivity before 1702. (See p. 244.) 

Pendleton Fletcher, a grandson of the last-mentioned Pendle- 
ton, was born 1707 ; lived in Biddeford, Me. ; died 1807, ae. 99|^. 

Following Part I. are the twenty-three branches of the family, 
some of the parts embracing several branches. 

The descendants of Eobert, whose names are herein contained, 
number within twoscore of four tJiousand, which, divided into gene- 
rations, are as follows : 

1st generation, 1 ; 2d, 5 ; 3d, 20 ; 4th, 82 ; 5th, 169 ; 6th, 406 ; 
7th, 854 ; 8th, 1414 ; 9th, 891 ; 10th, 117 ; 11th, 1. Total, 3960.

FLETCUER GENEALOGY. 



PART I. 

COMPRISING THE FIRST FOUR GENERATIONS. 

The name was originally written Fledger, and was the 
name of the trade of a maker of arrows ; or, as some think, 
of affixing the feather upon the arrow — fledging it.* The 
I^rench word flecMer has precisely the same meaning, and 
some have hence inferred a French extraction. All the 
traditions concur, however, in making our early ancestors of 
English or Welsh stock ; and Yorkshire, one of the novtb 
em counties of England, is named as the spot wh 
they emigrated to America. The name has been, and 
is, common there. Rev. Elijah Fletcher, of Hopkin 
N.H. (b. 1747, d. 1786), the tirst, so ftir as we know, who 
made genealogical collections of the family, believed that 
our great ancestor, Robert Fletcher, came from Yorkshire ; 
and that account was gathered when Robert's great-grand- 
children were living. 

FIRST GENERATION. 

1. ROBERT! settled at Concord, Mass., in 1630; in 
which year seventeen ships arrived in INlassachusetts Bay and 
at Plymouth. He had then three sons, Luke, William, and 
Samuel, and was himself thirty-eight years of age. It was 
five years later that Concord was organized, the twentieth 
town incorporated within what are now the limits of Mas- 
sachusetts, and his name appears in the earliest records of 
that town.f In the court files of Middlesex county his name

Shattuck, wlio speaks of the early settlers of tliis town as among the 
most wealthy, intelligent, and pious of the earl.y colonists. They chose 
this location probably on account of the beautiful open plain land and the

broad meadows of the Concord river, or Mnskptaquid (grass-grown) of 
the Indians. They were, however, disappointed by the " povertie and 
meannesse" of the soil and the "badness and wetnes " of the meadows; 
and ten years after the organization of the town, and fifteen after the 
arrival of Eobert ' in this country, the discouraging state of affairs iu 
the settlement is thus set forth by its leading citizens : 

" To the Wordl Goi^ernor, Deputy Governor, with the rest of the Assistants and Deputies 
of the Court now assembled. The humble petition of the Inhabitants of Concord 
sheioeth .• 

That, whereas, we have lived most of us in Concord since our coming over into these 
parts, and are not conscious unto ourselves that we have been grossly negligent to employ 
that talent God hath put into our hands to our best understanding: Neither have we found 
any special hand of God gone out against us, only the povertie and meannesse of the place 
we live in not answering the labor bestowed upon it, together with the badness and wetnes 
of the nieadowes, hath consumed most of the estates of those who have hitherto borne the 
burden of clianges amongst us, and tlierewith the bodily I'bilities of maney. This being soe 
eminent above what hath befallen other plantations, hath occasioned many at several times 
to depart from us, and this last winter, in the end of it, a 7th or 8th part of the Towne went 
to the southward with Mr. Jones, and many more resolved to goe after them, so that maney 
houses in the Towne stand voyde of Inhabitants, and more are likely to be ; and we are con- 
fident that if conscience had not restrained, fearing the dissolution of the Towne by their 
removeall, very many had departed to one place or other where Providence should have 
hopefully promised a livelehood. 

This our condition we thought it our duty to informe you of, fearing lest if more go from 
us we shall neitlier reniayne as a congregation nor a towne, and then .-uch as are most un- 
willing to depart, whiles there remayne any hopes of ordinance among us, will be enforced 
to leave the place, which if it should come to pass, wee desire this may testify on the behalf 
of such it was not a mynd unsatisfied with what was convenient, which occasioned them to 
depart, but meerely to attaine a subsistence for themselves and such as depend on them, 
and to enjoy ordinances. It it be sayd we may goe to other places and meet with as many 
difficulties as here, experience herein satisfies as against many reasons. Such as hardly sub- 
sisted with us, and wi-re none of the ablest among us, either for labour or ordering their 
occasions, have much thriven in other places they have removed unto. Our humble request 
is that you would be phased to considc'r how unable we are to beare with our brethren the 
common charges, the premises considered.

These in the name of the rest." 

This petition was presented May 14, 1645, just one month before the 
decisive battle of Naseby, between Charles I. and Oliver Cromwell. The 
petition was favorably received, and from the fact, which appears from 
the records, tiiat the assessment of Concord in 1G40 of jij'tii pounds for the 
"common char, ,es," was reduced to fiftaen in 1(345, it is inferred that the 
court was satisfied of the truth of the representations of the petitioners.

WILLIAM 2 (3), b. in England, 1622; came with his 
father to Concord, Ms., when he was eight j^ears old. He 
was admitted freeman May 10, 1643.* He m. Lydia Bates 
in Concord, Ms., Oct. 7, 1645, and in 1653, settled in 
Chelmsford, Ms. ; of which he was one of the first inhabit- 
ants, and held the office of selectman, to which office "he 
was chosen Nov. 22, 1654. This first publick meeting was 
holden at his house." 

On the court files of Middlesex county his name frequently 
appears. In 1665, as petitioner for a road; same year, a 
bill of costs for his servant being put in house of correction ; 
same year, bill of costs for suit against William Shaw. In 
1663, as appraiser of an estate. — In 1671, "Motion to court 
by William Fletcher, of Chelmsford. His sister Cary, on 
her death-bed, desired him and her husband to take care of 
her children. Willing to be engaged for the child Shery- 
biah Kebby." — In 1673, as commissioner for Chelmsford. 

The birth of his dau. Lydia only is found on the Concord 
records, — the first birth of a Fletcher that is recorded in 
America. 

A letter dated Feb. 15, 1676, "from the committee of 
the militia of Chelmsford," reads : " To our honord 
governor and counsail in Boston, mercy and peace : May 
it please yor honours." [Here represents the alarming con- 
dition from Indian outrages and depredations, and requests 
help.] Sio^ned by Sam. Adams, Samuel Fletcher (4)^, 
William Fletcher (3)^. 

His tract of land embraced what is now the city of Lowell ; 
and a part of his land, a farm near the meeting-house in 
Chelmsford, remains as it has been for more than 200 years 
in possession of the family, and is now occupied by Gardner 
Fletcher. (1221) f 



* The freeman's oath, required before entering upon the duties and 
privileges of citizenship, upon the attainment of majority, in Vermont, is 
as follows: "You solemnly swear (or affirm) that when you givi^ your 
vote of suffrage touching any matter that concerns the State of Vermont, 
you will do It so as in your conscience you shall judge will most conduce 
to the best good of the same, as established by the constitution, without 
fear or favor of any man. So help you God." | See appendix A.] 

T Mr. Gardner Fletcher relates, that the tradition in his branch is that 
Robert had a brother William, who immigrated at the same time. The 
only trace the writer has been able to find of a William who could have 
been brother of Robert, is from the records of Middletown, Ct. : "Rev. 
Samuel Stow, m. Hope, dau. of William Fletcher, Esq., 16i9."

The foregoing gives all the information we have of three 
generations; and also of the fourth, except those known to 
have had issue, the particulars concerning whom will be 
found hereinafter, where they are placed at the heads of the 
various branches, viz : 

Joshua" (27), part II. Paul" (2%), part III. John" 
(31), part IV. Joseph" (32), and Jonathan" (34), 2^cirt

It will be observed, that of the first four generations, all, 
of whose occupations we have any account, were farmers, 
and many of them were large landholders. This taste for 
agriculture seems to have continued very generally with their 
descendants, as the following pages will exhibit. 

All of these one hundred and more were born in the towns 
of Concord and Chelmsford, as those towns then were ; or 
in Concord, Chelmsford, Westford, Tyngsboro, Acton, and 
Carlisle, as the boundaries of the towns now are.

wilderness. Here he lived fifty years, subduing and culti- 
vating the land, and was blest with a competence as the 
result of his industry. Pie was a leading man in the com- 
munity, and a pillar in the church ; a good citizen, and a 
devoted Christian. He d. July 17, 1784. All his nine chil-

companions. 



54 FLETCEEB GENEALOGY.— PART V. 

The homes of Dea. Joseph and his sturdy sons, in close 
proximity, are interesting relics of by-gone days. About 
a mile and a half from the village of old Dunstable, on the 
HoUis road, we cross Jointgrass brook and ascend the hill 
beyond, and then leaving the old school-house on the left, we 
see, a few rods to the west, an old-fiishioned two-story dweU 
ling, with capacious barns. Here lived Thomas (684), the 
eldest son of Dea. Joseph, and reared his numerous family, 
of whom Francis, the youngest, still lives here. The house 
where Joseph (689), the third son of Dea. Joseph, settled 
and lived several years, stands a short distance north, and 
fronting the south, surrounded by five tall buttouwood trees. 
Still farther north, about an eighth of a mile, a tall button- 
wood and four elms stand guardians of the ancient homestead 
where the father Joseph lived and died. His son Phineas, 
grandson Mark, and great grandson George W., have in turn 
owned the sacred spot, hallowed by thirty births aud half as 
many deaths. 

Looking from here to the west of north, distant about an 
eighth of a mile," stand two houses about a stone's throw 
apart. The one with the tall buttonwoods was the residence 
of Jonathan (685), the second son of Dea. Joseph. In the 
other lived Jonathan's son Samuel (737). From Blanchard's 
hill may be seen the church spires of Pepperell, Hollis, aud 
Londonderry. 

The daughters m. and settled in the vicinity. It is related 
that the family gatherings were enormous for numbers, such 
as the present day of small families cannot produce. Such 
thanksgivings ! 

The following incidents, which are authentic, read strangely 
to one now living on the spot. 

Joseph had gone to the nearest mill, which was in West- 
ford, about eight miles distant, and had to remain away over 
night, his wife remaining at home alone. In the evening, 
she heard something like the scream of a child. Stepping to 
the door, she encountered the glaring eyes of a catamount 
pei'ched in a tree. She fiistened the door, and then, fearing 
the animal might gain access through the window, she 
crawled into a barrel and contrived to get its open end 
against tTie wall and there passed the night. 

While Joseph was hoeing corn in the field one day, and 
his little daughter Susannah, who had been playing around 
him, had lain do^vn on the greensward in the shade at the 



FLETCHER GENEALOGY. — PABT V. 55 

side of the field and gone to sleep, he saw a large black bear 
crossing the field and going directly toward the sleeping 
child. The gun was then always close at hand, and a well- 
directed shot saved the child. 

On one occasion, the flock of sheep came rushing down 
Blanchard's hill with a bear in full pursuit. But Bruin, in- 
stead of feasting on the mutton he was after, furnished the 
table with his own steaks. 

The mother was kind and tender-hearted toward her chil- 
dren, and when the boys were caught in mischievous pranks, 
she would whip them herself, and then report them to the 
father. She knew that her very gentle castigation would be 
an estoppel of any further punishment from the heavier hand 
of the father. 

A correspondent says : " Dea. Joseph was a remarkable 
man, — kind, benevolent, always self-possessed; he seemed 
like the patriarchs of old. He continued to have re-unipns 
of his family twice a year till they numbered over sixty."

We have the following anecdote of Elijah's boyhood : 
When about twelve years of age, he was for some reason 
allowed, one Sunday morning, to remain at home from meet- 
ing. A neighbor had just set out in front of his house some 
young elm trees, and himself and family had gone to meet- 
ing. Little Elijah dug up the elms, and transplanted them 
to the front of his father's house, before the meeting was 
over. The neighbor, astonished to see his trees gone over 
to Mr. Fletcher's, would not, however, desecrate the sacred 
day by making any inquiries ; but very early Monday morn- 
ing, Elijah was called to account, the result of which was, 
that Mr. Fletcher supplied other trees for those taken away, 
and the purloined elms remained ; and at this day spread 
their lofty branches, in vigorous old age, among the many 
beautiful elms of the beautiful town of Westford. 

He laid the foundation of the present work more than one 
hundred years ago, and left a diagram and memoranda of 
facts which he had collected relating to the Fletcher history, 
and especially to the earliest settlers. Issue :

"In 1811, Isaac Fletcher, an educated, well-read lawyer, 

came to town After receiving his diploma, he 

taught in the academy at Chesterfield, N. H., and there 
formed an acquaintance with Miss Abigail Stone, his future 
wife. He read law with Mr. Vose, of N. H., and Judge 
White, of Putney, Vt. Of an ardent temperament, am- 
bitious, prompt, energetic, unremitting in his efforts for his 
clients, he soon attained an extensive and lucrative practice. 
In doing this, he overwrought both his bodily and mental 
powers, participating in almost every trial in the supreme 
and county courts of three counties, and being eight years in 
succession state attorney of Caledonia Co. Four times he 
was representative in the state legislature ;' once speaker of 
that body. He was twice elected representative in Congress, 
but his health failing him, be could not distinguish himself 
as in his profession. He was also adjutant-gen. in the gov- 
ernor's staff."

Farley. Ees. Nashua, N. H. ; d. without 
issue in Lyndon, Vt., Aug. 12, 1851. An 
obituary notice in a Nashua paper says : "Col. 
Fletcher, during his short life, occupied many 
positions of honor among us. He was c4erk 
of the house of reps., aid to Gov. Williams, 
' and during the latter part of the Mexican war, 
held a commission as commissary in the U. S. 
army ; exercised for some time a command in 
Texas, on tjie border. He was distinguished 
no less for his kindness to those under his 
orders than for his gallantry in many a sharp 
fight on the frontier. As a lawyer, his repu- 
tation for a young man was high."

The following is derived from a sketch prepared hy Wil- 
liam B. Teask, Esq., and published in the " N. E. Genealog- 
ical Register."' 

Calvin was the eleventh of fifteen children, most of whom, 
it is remarkable, lived to receive an education and go out 
into the world. Under the teachings of an excellent father, 
and a mother of more than ordinary ability, he early learned 
those habits of industry and self-reliance which, coupled with 
upright principles, uniformly characterized his manhood-life. 
While performing all the duties exacted from a boy on a 
New-England farm, he very soon manifested a great desire 
for a classical education. This desire was stimulated by the 
concurring advice of his mother and the witnessed success of 
his brother Elijah, who had, a few years before, completed 



FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PABT V. 85 

his college course. Depending on his own earnings for the 
means of obtaining an education, he set about preparing 
himself for college through the instrumentalities afforded 
him by brief periods of instruction in the academies of Ran- 
dolph and Eoyalton, in Vermont. In the course of his 
studies iDccuniary troubles interfered, his father having be- 
come financially embarrassed. The older sons and daughters 
had left their native State, and, at the request of Calvin, his 
father "■ gave him his time," and he went from home. He 
made an effort at Boston to ship as a sailor before the mast, 
but did not succeed in the attempt. We next find him iu 
Pennsylvania, where he engaged himself, for a short time, 
as a laborer in a brick-yard. To show that his literary tastes 
were not impaired by his new and humble employment, it 
may be mentioned that he always carried with him a small 
edition of Pope's poems, which he read at each moment of 
leisure. But his brick-making came shortly to an end. His 
intelligence soon attracted the attention of a gentleman 
named Foot, by whom he was induced to go to the State of 
Ohio. There he first taught school at Urbana, county of 
Champaign ; was subsequently private tutor in the family of 
a Mr. Gwin, whose fine library gave him a capital opportu- 
nity for reading ; and he finally studied law at Urbana with 
Hon. James Cooley, afterwards "U. S. Charge d 'Affaires " 
in Peru. 

In 1819, he went to Richmond, Virginia, and was licensed 
to practise by the supreme court of the Old Dominion. At 
one time he thought of settling in Virginia, but even then 
his strong love of freedom and the riglits of man made him 
renounce his intention, and caused him to return to Urbana, 
where he became the law partner of Mr. Cooley. Indian- 
apolis was set apart for the capital of Indiana, by the legis- 
lature of that State, Jan. 6, 1821, and the same year Mr. 
Fletcher settled there with his family. He was the first law- 
yer in the city, and no one, certainly, was more successful. 
Poor at the time of his location, his business, carefully 
attended to, became lucrative. For several years he was 
prosecuting attorney. He took in, as a partner, Ovid But- 
ler, Esq., and subsequently, Simon Yandes, Esq. At his 
death, he had become wealthy, both of his partners having 
previously retired, as had also Mr. Fletcher, from the prac- 
tice of the law. 

Says a contributor to the " Indiana Weekly Herald " of 



86 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PAET V. 

June 2d, 1866, "We had the gratification of hearing Mr. 
Fletcher argue one case, and but one, to a jury, that of J. B. 
Otey, who was tried in the United States court, in 1841, for 
robbing the mail. The case was prosecuted by district- 
attorney Gushing, of Madison, and lion. John Petitt, of La- 
fayette. Associated with Mr. Fletcher in the defence, was 
Hon. Tilghman A. HoAvard. Mr. Fletcher's effort was able 
and successful. On making the city his home, Mr. Fletcher 
actively interested himself in its prosperity ; he was a mem- 
ber of the first fire company organized in it, — the " Old 
Marion" ; he won the confidence and respect of the people. 
In 1827, he was elected a State senator, in which office he 
was continued till 1832, when he abandoned politics, though 
a successful career was open to him in that path, had ho 
chosen to follow it. In 1836, after the lamented death of 
Colonel Kinnaird, he replied to those soliciting him to be- 
come a candidate for congress, that he preferred to adhere 
to his profession and educate his children." 

Mr. Fletcher was married to Sarah Hill, by Kev. Samuel 
Hill, May 1, 1821, in the county of Champaign, Ohio, about 
four miles from Urbana, the county-seat. She was born in 
the county of Fleming, Ky., to which State her parents 
removed from Virginia nearly a century ago, or about the 
time of the Daniel Boone immigration. 

Mrs. Fletcher died in the autumn of 1854. On the 5th of 
November, 1855, he married Mrs. Keziah Price Lister, nee 
Backhurst, who survives him. 

We have the gratification of introducing a short auto- 
biography of Mr. Fletcher. In a letter dated March 25, 
1861, to Mr. John Ward Dean, then the corresponding 
secretary of the New England Hist. Gen. Society, he writes 
thus concerning himself: "At that period [1815], I had 
only had the advantages of two months each year at the 
school in the district where my father lived. For two 
years I labored for others, at wages a portion of the time, 
and the residue I spent at the academies of Randolph and 
Royalton in my native State. 1\\ 1817, I determined on 
a seaman's life, and in April of the same year went to Bos- 
ton, a total stranger, and tried my best to obtain a berth on 
board an East-Indiaman, but failed. I then turned my face 
towards the country west of the Alleghanies. In two months 
I worked my way, mostly on foot, to the western part of 
Ohio and stopped at Urbana, then the frontier settlement of 



FLEJCHER GENEALOGY. — PABT V. 87 

the northwestern part of that State. I knew not an indi- 
vicUuil in the State — had no letter of introduction. I 
obtained labor as a hired hand for a short time, and then a 
school. In the fall of 1817, I obtained a situation in the 
law office of the honorable James Cooley, a gentleman of 
talents and fine education ; one of a large class which grad- 
uated at Yale, under Dr. D wight. He was sent to Peru 
under John Quincy Adams's administration, and died there. 
In the fall of 1820, I was admitted to the bar, and became 
the law partner of my worthy friend and patron, Mr. Cooley. 
In the summer of 1821, the Delaware Indians left the central 
part of Indiana, then a total wilderness, and the new State 
selected and laid ofl:' Indianapolis as its future capital, but 
did not make it such for four or five years thereafter. I had 
married, and, on my request, my worthy partner permitted 
me to leave him to take up my residence at the place desig- 
nated as the seat of government of Indiana. In September 
of that year (1821), I left Urbana with a wagon, entered the 
wilderness, and after travelling fourteen days and camping 
out the same number of nights, reached Indianapolis, where 
there were a few newly-erected cabins. No counties had 
been laid off in the newly-acquired territory, but in a few 
years civil divisions were made. I commenced the practice 
of law, and for about twenty-two years travelled over, twice 
annually, nearly one-third of the northwestern part of the 
State, at first without roads, bridges, or ferries. In 1825, I 
was appointed states-attorney for the fifth judicial circuit, 
embracing some twelve or fifteen counties. This office I 
held about one year, when I was elected to the State senate ; 
served seven years, resigned, and gave up official positions, 
as I then supposed, for life. But in 1834, I was appointed 
by the legislature one of four to organize a State bank, and 
to act as sinking-fund commissioner. I held this place also 
seven years. From 1843 till 1859, I acted as president of 
the branch of the State bank at Indianapolis, until the charter 
expired. During the forty years I have resided in Indiana, 
I have devoted much of my time to agriculture, and societies 
for its promotion, and served seven years as trustee of our 
city schools. I have been favored with a large family, — 
nine sons and two daughters. Three of the former have 
taken a regular course, and graduated at Brown University, 
Providence, R. I., and two a partial course at the same insti- 
tution. I have written no books, but have assisted in com- 



88 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PART V. 

piling a law book. I have kept a journal of daily events, 
contiued mainly to my own routine of business." 

Mr. Fletcher died in Indianapolis, May 26, 1866, aged 
sixty-eight. His death was occasioned by a fall from his 
horse a few weeks previous. 

A meeting of the bankers was held in that city on the 28th, 
and a committee, consisting of J. C. S. Harrison, David 
Snyder, and Mr. Mansur, was appointed, who reported 
resolutious, which were adopted, — among them the fol- 
lowing : 

" That in the career of Mr. Fletcher are presented very 
striking evidences of what 'great and good things may be 
accomplished under our free institutions by sound sense and 
unfailing energy, no matter how unpromising the circum- 
stances of their possessor may be at his outset in life. 

" That his success in business is the history of a life of 
hopeful labor, pure integrity, genial benevolence, steady 
caution, and active usefulness ; in which great results have 
been attained, not l)y brilliant strokes of adventure, or any 
dependence upon fortune, but by those plainer and less 
obtrusive methods, which are within the reach of the great 
majority of men, and affords a lesson of hope and warning, 
— hope to the upright, diligent, and frugal; warning to the 
reckless and idle who wait upon fortune." 

Mr. Fletcher was a strong man, physically, morally, and 
intellectually. In the early stages of his pioneer life he had 
to withstand to the face, and nt times with bodily force resist, 
those who attempted to deprive him of his rights. There 
were no courts there, at first, in the infant settlement, to take 
cognizance of breaches of the peace and of ill behavior ; but 
each man had to be, as it were, "a law unto himself," — his 
own judge and executor. He was equal to the emergency, 
and when the trial of strength came could do justice to him- 
self. In the same spirit he stood ready also to befriend 
those who might otherwise have been injured. 

He was a great lover of natiu-e. He took much interest in 
the study of oruithology, and made himself familiar with the 
habits of birds, their instincts and characteristics. The 
domestic animals found in him a sympathizing friend. He 
was kind to them, — ever ready to learn in regard to their 
particular dispositions and qualities, using such knowledge, 
when obtained, to their advantage. 

He was fond of the science of astronomy, and in fact of 



FLETCEEB GENEALOGY. — PART V, 89 

almost everything that was elevating and ennobling. In his 
well-selected library of general literature, in addition to law 
books, might be seen, in close proximity, local histories, 
periodicals, the works of Audubon, school journals, and 
miscellaneous works. He availed himself of the opportuni- 
ties afforded him, as one of the pioneers, and a continued 
resident of Indianapolis, to collect and preserve local news- 
papers, books, and magazines. At his death these accumu- 
lated volumes of western literature Avere deposited in one of 
the institutions of the city. 

He was a man of method. Usually he would rise at four 
o'clock in the morning, and attend to his correspondence till 
breakfast ; then be off to give directions in regard to his farm 
of sixteen hundred acres, situated about two miles from his 
residence. On his return he would eno:ao:e in his duties at 
the bank, or other employments, always on the move, ever 
active, ever accomplishing important results. 

From a communication in the " Indiana Weekly State Ga- 
zette" of Juno n, 1866, the following is taken : 

"The multitudes, in this community and in the West, who 
have for man}^ years felt it to be their highest honor to be 
known as the friends of Calvin Fletcher, will only need to 
be assured by his early associates that the bright and mature 
development of his character is only what might have been 
expected in the ripened shock in the ear, from its premise 
in the grain-seed. 

" When a young lawyer, and with his gentle wife from 
Ohio, in the first week of October of 1821, he unloaded his 
wagon of householdings and books at a cabin he had pur- 
chased, standing in the centre of the future Washington 
street, near the State-house, in this city, how little was anti- 
cipated by the passing settlers the influence the new-comer 
would exert on the future of our prospective city and the 
region surrounding ! 

" In one leading trait, his course was marked and earnest. 
No poor man ever applied to Calvin Fletcher, in his need, 
either for counsel or assistance, and was sent empty away ; 
and when the friends of the colored man, fleeing from bond- 
age, were few and unpopular in this community, his sym- 
pathy and assistance was never withheld." 

The Rev. Edmund Squire, of Dorchester, Mass., in a let- 
ter to Mr. Trask, says : 

"He was a man of courage. When to be a friend of the 

12 



90 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PART V. 

slave was not only unfashionable but dangerous, he, at the 
risk of his life, forced his way into a so-called court of jus- 
tice, where a mob thirsted for a slave's blood, and fasteniu^^ 
his eye on the judge, by a few strong words of truth, changed 
the coming doom, and gave the man his life. 

"Lastly, he was like all men of power in his age, exceed- 
ingly rapid in thought and action ; before others had begun 
the argument he had concluded it, and was oif. I think I 
never saw him sit entirely still ; repose was not his domi- 
nant characteristic ; he was like a bird on the bough. Cal- 
vin Fletcher was not a perfect, but he was a very remarkable 
man, one of the fathers of his city and of the West. Such 
another man I have never seen, and never expect to see 
again." 

The following is from the funeral discourse delivered by 
his pastor. Rev. A. S. Kinman : 

"Early in the history of his life, he washed his hands from 
the guilt of that sum of national villainies, American slavery. 
He was an abolitionist when it cost something to be one. 
He once said to one of his sons, * When I am in the court 
house engaged in an important suit, if the governor of the 
State should send in word that he wished" to speak with me, 
I would reply that I could not go ; but if a Quaker should 
touch me on the shoulder and say, 'A colored man is out 
here hi distress and fear,' I would leave the court-house in a 
minute to see the man ; for I feel that I would have to ac- 
count at that last chiy when He shall ask me if ^ I have visited 
the sick and in prison or bondage, and fed the poor.' The 
great of this world can take care of themselves, but God has 
made us stewards for the downtrodden, and we must account 
to him." 

These old anti-slavery men are now being gathered to their 
fathers, but the nation owes them a debt of gratitude never 
yet paid. Thank God, that Mr. Fletcher lived to see the 
bond go free. Like Simeon of old, he and his co-laborers 
are now permitted to say for themselves, "Let thy servants 
depart in peace, for our eyes have beheld thy salvation." 
But I point you to him as a Christian. If the sentiment, 
"By their fruits ye shall know them," be the criterion of 
Christian character, then I would point you to every Pro- 
testant church of this city, and nearly all of this country ; I 
would point you to the school-houses and seminaries ; I would 
point you to our houses of charity and asylums ; I would 



FLETCHEE GENEALOGY. ^ PAH T V. 91 

point you to hundreds of ministers' wives and hungry cliil- 
dren ; I would point you to all the benevolent societies for 
the poor, and the maimed and oppressed ; sixteen persons 
that he educated during his life out of his own funds, and 
say, Calvin Fletcher has stock in them all ; and thus " he 
being dead yet speaketh." No man could love and respect 
the Bible and the minister more than he. He was a constant 
student of the one, and hearer of the other. Among the 
very last things he said, was to speak of his love and respect 
for his pastor, and the last rational recognition was to recog- 
nize the Bible under the most touchino; circumstances. The 
eldest and youngest son had arisen to take their turn in 
watching with him. He had been unconscious for many 
hours. His oldest son had brought in the large family Bible 
for personal use, and while sitting by his side he opened his 
eyes, and recoo;nizing the Book of God, he nodded his head 
and smiled in the most grateful and pleasing manner. 

Permit me to quote from his private journal some facts 
relating to his inner life of religion. 

" January 1, 1829. — For two or three months past, I have 
felt strongly impressed with the great importance of religion, 
and the vanity and uncertainty of the things of this world. 
And further, feeling I am approaching what is certainly the 
meridian of life (thirty-five), I have been led to inquire into 
the truth of the Scriptures in relation to that intelligent, im- 
mortal part called the soul, in order to satisfy myself on this 
subject, on which at first I had some doubts. Yes, I even 
found myself to be almost an infidel. I applied to a number 
of my friends who had professed religion (I feel thankful 
that I had such friends, for they have been a consolation and 
light which I little expected), and found, on inquiry, they 
were enjoying treasures of which I was entirely ignorant. I 
attended several class-meetings of the Methodists, in which 
I found further evidence of the s^ood thino;s which relio-ious 
and pious people enjoy. On Tuesday night before New 
Year, I resolved to go forward at the watch-night meeting of 
the Methodists. It would take volumes to tell the doubts I 
had in coming to a conclusion on this o-reat undertaking. I 
had for a long time clung to the world, and my affections 
were strongly rooted there. I was a representative of a dis- 
trict in the senate, a lawyer, the legislature Avas in session, 
&c., &c., which all tended to frighten me. However, I 
tremblingly advanced this morning and gave my hand, and

there, openly to the world, and more strongly confessed on 
my part, the covenant I had made to serve God, as earnestly 
as in me lay. Rev. Mr. Wiley and Edwin Ray, a local 
preacher of Madison, Ind., preached two sermons, beginning 
at nine o'clock of the old 3'ear, and preached till twelve, 
when Mr. Armstrong, our local preacher, gave an exhorta- 
tion and opened the door to receive members, and I went 
forward. Sensible am I now that I was too unworthy to 
make such a profession. I returnd home, and went to l)ed 
at two A. M., and rose about one half hour before sunrise. 
I determined to set my house in better order than before. 
Brother James Hill, also a member of the Methodist church, 
performed a duty which I had always neglected — to have 
family prayer in my house. In the evening I went to see 
my friend James M. Ray. He was just going to the Pres- 
byterian meeting-house, to attend a Sunday school. None 
of the members came. He went in. All was dark. He 
very affectionately expressed his joy that I had on the new 
year commenced the service of the Lord. We reviewed our 
whole life, and covenanted with each other to watch, pray 
for, and admonish each other ; to suppress all heart-burnings 
in and against the respective churches to which we belonged. 
As a friend well tried, I have found none better than Mr. 
Ray, and Mr. James Blake, our absent friend, who both have 
within the past year become members of the Presbyterian 
church, the latter of whom, in his conversation after I had 
revealed my first convictions to him, gave me good counsel 
and consolation and strength in the steps I was desirous to 
take. While at the meeting-house my friend Ray, at my 
request, made a most pathetic and feeling prayer, which, to 
me, was as the refreshing dews to the parched earth. AV^e 
parted, pledging to each other to be friends, not only in the 
world, but in the cause of Christ. 

" January 3. — This evening I have made some very slight 
examination of myself, in relation to my fitness to go for- 
ward on to-morrow and partake in the solemn ordinances of 
the Lord's Supper. In this, I feel greatly and awfully defi- 
cient and doubtful. 

"Sunday, January 4, 1829. — On this day, for the first 
time, I went forward and partook of the Lord's Supper. I 
had many doubts and many difficulties in coming to a con- 
clusion as to my fitness in so important a step. I felt truly 
unworthy, yet from prayer, I satisfied myself that it was my 



FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PART V. 93 

duty to advance ; that I was unworthy to be called his fol- 
lower, until I could fully confess Jesus Christ before men." 

"February 4, 1865. — My birthday. I am sixty-seven 
years old. I have not been indiflerent and without concern 
in relation to the better life beyond this present state. This 
has been a subject before me night and day. I feel that I 
am fast approaching the end of this Avorld's labors. I have 
no labor so great and so important as that of a sure prepara- 
tion to the entrance on another state of existence. My desire 
is to be more studious, more devoted and prayerful. I ask 
God daily, and continually, to give me his grace and pardon ; 
to send his holy spirit to enlighten and instruct me in this 
vital preparation for a better life. I enter on another year, 
feeling its importance more sensibly than ever before. I 
have comfortable seasons mingled with times of depression 
and sense of great unworthiness. 

"Sunday, February 4th, 1866. — Sixty-eight years old. 
Born on Sunday — a happy day to me. What makes this 
day more dear to mc is that I was born on it. May God 
sanctify this holy day — the Sabbath — to my use and salva- 
tion. It has always been a dear and blessed day to me. 
May God strengthen and go with me as he permits me to 
walk into a new year of my life, pe^'haps the last. May I 
live in readiness to meet his last call on earth Avith lamp 
trimmed and ready to enter into the morning feast. He has 
been present thus far to sustain me, and, like a kind father, 
forgiving and merciful. May I have the spirit with me to 
teach and instruct me, that old age will not be marked with 
mental imbecility , impatience, and want of faith, but may I 
be constantly in the spirit, in love and in union with Christ." 
This was the last entry in his journal, the closing para- 
graph of a great and good man's life.

His youth was spent in an alternation of student and farm

Univ. 1852. While a student he was hopefully converted, 
and joined the Meth. Epis. Church. After graduating he 
became professor in the Indiana University at Greencastle, 
Ind. 

In the fall of 1860, he was elected superintendent of pub- 
lic instruction for the State of Indiana, which position he 
held at his death. In this capacity his labors were incredi- 
ble. When the firing upon Sumter aroused the nation, he 
assisted, by request of the governor, in drilling raw recruits 
for the three months' service at Camp Morton. His brother, 
Dr. William B., having been captured by the rebels in July, 
1861, he made a visit, in Aug. 1861, to West Virginia, and 
another in the winter to Washington, for the purpose of 
ascertaining the place of his confinement and efiecting his 
release, both of which objects he accomplished. 

He was killed on the Evansville railway, May 10, 1862, 
while on an expedition for the relief of the sick and wounded 
of our . army near Corinth. His funeral at Indianapolis is 
said to have been the largest that ever took place in the

E. W. Willarcl, nee Houghton, in Winchester, Ms. Carpen- 
ter and lumber dealer. 

In the war of the Rebellion, he volunteered Aug. 2, 1862, 
for three years, or during the war. He was attached to the 
Andrews Sharp-shooters, which company he joined Sept. 
13, 1856, at Frederic City. The next day, Sept. 14, he 
went into the battle at Antietam, and at about eleven A. M, 
a ball passed through his right lung; and then, while lying 
upon the field, he was struck on the arm by a fragment of a 
shell. In this condition he was taken prisoner. His wounds, 
though considered fatal, were dressed by a surgeon ; but in 
about forty-eight hours, being unable to march, he was 
abandoned with other wounded men of both armies, and the 
ground on which they lay was regained by the Union troops. 
After remaining on the battle-ground eight days, during 
which time he received some care, he was rem. to Frederic 
City, and thence to Philadelphia. Then at the regular hos- 
pital at Germantown, he received the best of care and treat- 
ment, so that October 30, he was discharged and returned 
home.

SIMEON 5 (1436), b. May 2, 1722; rem. from Chelms- 
ford and settled in Amherst, N. H., where he m. Mary Davis, 
and where their first five children were b. Thence he rem. 
to Greenfield, N. H. The deeds are still extant in which 
he conveys considerable tracts of land in Chelmsford. The 
deed closes in the form of that day, "I set my hand and seal 
this tenth day of Dec, 1744, in the 18th year of the reign 
of our sovereign Lord, George the 2d by the Grace of God, 
of Great Britain, France, Ireland, King, Defender of the 
Faith." It would seem that soon after selling his land in 
Chelmsford he removed to Amherst. There is also a deed 
to him of a tract of land in New Hampshire Province. This 
was in Greenfield, N. H., and this farm, or at least a part of 
it, is now cultivated by his great-grandson. The old home- 
btead has now its 5th generation. Issue :

HENKY^ (1651),* b. inWestford, Ms., Aug. 17, 1751 ; he 
was m. Nov. 30, 1773, to Deborah, dan. of Aaron and Dorothy 
(Fletcher) Parker, of the same town. Immediately after 
his marriage, he settled in New IiDswich, N. H. In the his- 
tory of that town, his name appears on the list of tax-payers 
for 1774, with a tax of 9s. dd.; whole town-tax, 106Z. 16s. 
On the map accompanying that history, his name appears as 
original proprietor of town lots Nos. 138 and 152, both on 
the north side of Barrett's Mountain. 

In 1777, he joined a company of volunteers, which in- 
cluded Nathaniel Pratt, father of the wife of Eeuben (1677), 
and marched to " Old Ti," as it was generally expressed, to 
intercept Gen. Burgoyne. Neither of them was in any bat- 
tle or skirmish, though at one time, just previous to the sur- 
render, they were stationed where, from the movements of 
the troops, they "expected every moment to see the bullets 
fly." On their way to the seat of war, they passed through 
Windsor County, Vermont, then a wilderness, in which they 
subsequently settled, and where they both died. 

Henry's first three children were born in New Ipswich. 
In 1778, he rem. to Carlisle [then Acton], where tAvo more 
of his children were b., both of whom d. young. Then he 
rem. to a farm known as "Blood's place," in Westford, 
where Reuben was born. Soon afterwards' he went on to his 
father's homestead on Stony Brook. After living in his 
father's house about seven years, and an absence from New 
Ipswich of some twelve, he returned to that town in 1790. 
During the twelve years of his residence in Massachusetts, 
the law of the State by which Congregational worship was 
supported, in some cases at least, by a tax on the person and 
property of all the inhabitants, was warmly discussed, and 
most violently opposed, especially by the Baptist denomina- 
tion, to which he belonged. Conscientiously refusing to pay 
one of these "minister taxes," he was committed to Concord 
jail, though it is believed he remained only one night, when 
the tax was paid by friends. 

On his return to New Ipswich, in 1790, there remained of 
his old home land enough, to be sure, but only land. The 
house had been sold and removed, and the farm had been 
" improved " only as pasturage. 



* The account of Henry and his descendants was prepared by Stil- 
man (1723), who has otherwise assisted in the preparation and publication 
of this work. 



144 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PART VIL 

To appreciate the difficulties and hardships of the next ten 
years of his life, it is not enough to remember that there was 
neither house nor barn, fences nor fields on his laud, and 
that he had a large family to support ; but we must recall 
the condition of our country at that time. The army of the 
Revolution had been disbanded about seven years. It was 
only three years after " Shay's Insurrection." That very 
year (1790) Rhode Island gave her reluctant assent to our 
present Constitution. Confidence in government, confidence 
in each other, even, was wanting. Business was dead. No 
commerce, no manufacturing, no enterprise of any kind. 
British goods, admitted without a protective tarifi", had 
drained off what specie the Revolution left. Continental 
money was worthless. Taxes were high, wages low, and 
employment difiicult to be found at any price. Iron and salt 
could hardly be had. Clothing was all home-made ; herbs 
were used for tea ; molasses was made of maple, boiled cider, 
and cornstalks ; sections of large hard-wood logs, saAv^ed oif 
some foot thick, with holes made in the centre, were used 
for cart-wheels. The population of Boston was only 18,038. 
Lowell was a pine plain, and factory corporations unknown. 

During the twelve years (1778-90) that he carried on his 
father's farm in Westford, there was no market nearer than 
Boston, over twenty miles distant ; and produce was often 
carried to Salem, and even to Marblehead, with a team of 
two oxen and one horse ; but in going to either place, it was 
not customary to " put up " at a tavern while from home. 
When he carried corn, the time of arrival at the mill at 
Charlestown, where it was ground, was regulated by the 
night tide, at the ebb of which the sleepy miller was hurried 
up to grind the grist that it might be peddled out early in 
the morning. So great have been the changes in the wealth 
of the country and in the habits of the j)eople, within the last 
century, that the present generation can scarcely form an 
idea of the poverty of the whole country at that time, or of 
the difficulty that people generally found in obtaining money 
to pay taxes or debts. It is not strange, therefore, notwith- 
standing all his hard labor and rigid economy, that he 
incurred debts in erecting buildings, etc., on his land in New 
Ipswich, which finally obliged him to sell out at a low price. 

In the year 1800, he removed to Plymouth, Windsor Co., 
Vermont. Here he built a saw and grist mill on a lot of 
wild land, and in a section where, at that time, "the deer

played and the Tfolves howled." After buildmg the saw- 
mill, he commenced the clearing'-iip of the farm on which ho 
passed the Vtst years of his life, strikius: the first blow on 
his fiftieth birthday. "My neighbors," he used to remark, 
" called me an old fool for planting an orchard on land cleared 
hy my own hands after I was fifty years of age." He lived, 
however, to see that orchard in its prime, and to enjoy its 
fruit for many years. Ilere he erected good buildings, and 
found himself in his old ag in possession of a productive 
farm and the means of a comfortable support. Wife d. May

WILLIAM' (1673), b. in New Ipswich, N. H., Mar. 31, 
1776. Settled in Plymouth, Vt., about 1798. In company 
with his brother Aaron, he purchased a tract of land in the 
northeast corner of that township, at one dollar and seventeen 
cents per acre. They commenced chopping down the trees 
in 1799. After felling about eight acres, they found them- 
selves out of provisions and out of money. They went to 
Rutland and worked two months in the best of the season at 
twelve dollars per month, payable in provisions, — a consid- 
erable part of which, however, was lost by the failure of 
their employer, one Williams. This partnership was dis- 
solved after a continuance of some three years. William m.

he shared their hardships and privations. He had to "back" 
hay from the south part of the town, some five miles, and 
over a very hilly road, to fodder the oxen that harrowed in 
his first field of grain. Here he cleared up a farm, erected 
good buildings, — his being the first, and for many years the 
only, two-story house in the neighborhood, — and here he 
brought up a large family. This section is mountainous, and 
the population so sparse that it has ever been difficult to 
maintain public religious services ; but he always did what he 
could for the support of such services, and for the proper

winter seasons ; when, at the age of eighteen, he went with 
his employer to Nelson, N. H., then mostly a wilderness, and 
where "wolves disturbed them at night-time. 

In the summer of 1799 he commenced work on land owned 
by himself and his brother William, in Plymouth, Vt., and 
on which he labored more or less till 1802, when he bar- 
gained for a blacksmith shop in Chelmsford, Mass., which, 
however, he did not occupy immediately. In 1805 he was 
settled in business in Chelmsford, and was married to Miss 
Sarah Neef, of Carlisle, in 1806. Two children were born 
to them in Chelnisford, one of whom was run over by a 
loaded team, and instantly killed. After living five years in 
Chelmsford, he removed to Carlisle village, April, 1811. In 
1838, he sold his house and shop in the village, and removed 
some two miles to the farm on which his father lived from

in Jamestown, N. Y. ; d. 1866. 

The following was written by Judge Abner Hazeltine : 

" Mr. Adolphus Fletcher came to Jamestown when it was 
a small village, a mere hamlet, situated in an obscure corner, 
remote from any thoroughfare, and scarcely known abroad, 
except to a few on the waters below us who were engaged in 
the lumber trade. Mr. Fletcher and his paper were among 
the instrumentalities for bringing this secluded section into 
notice, and if the remarks called forth by the first number of 
the ' Jamestown Journal,' from the editor of other papers 
to whom it was sent with the usual request, 'Please Ex- 
change,' could now be collected, they would be a source of 
much amusement. The undertaking was evidently regarded 
as Quixotic by those who had heard of Jamestown, if not a 
hoax. But the work then commenced has completed more 
than fifty yearly volumes. 

" The boyhood of Mr. Fletcher was passed on his father's 
farm, with occasional attendance on the schools which were 
then well sustained in the Old Bay State. His apprenticship 
was jjassed in the office of the 'Massachusetts Spy,' which 
was established at Worcester, by Mr. Thomas, prior to the 
American revolution. Soon after becoming of age, he mar- 
ried. May 13, 1818, Miss Sarah Stow, a native of Worcester, 
and who had been his neighbor and associate from childhood. 

"Prior to his marriage, an elder brother and sister had 
settled in Chatauque county, N. Y. , and had purchased from 
the first occupant, Reuben Slayton, Esq., the site of the 
13resent village of Ashville. His ftither's family having 
concluded about that time to follow their elder children to 
their new home, he was induced to accompany them. A 



FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — FABT VIII. 161 

• 
friend who accompanied him informs the writer, that the two 
families started from Worcester with a span of horses and 
two pairs of oxen, and were three weeks on the way, arriv- 
ing at what was then known as Goose Creek, or Slayton's 
Mills, in June, 1818. 

"During his residence at Ashville, he was to some extent 
engaged in farming. He also had a small store in connec- 
tion with the late Dr. Deming, of Westfield, and kept a 
tavern. He was thus employed, when, at the solicitation of 
friends at Jamestown, who knew something of his early pur- 
suits, he resolved to resume his original occupation. He 
removed to Jamestown in the summer of 1824, and with a 
small stock of type, purchased mostly on credit, and a press 
constructed on the spot, under his own supervision, he soon 
commenced the 'Jamestown Journal,' doing a large share 
of the work with his own hands. For several years, no man 
in Jamestown worked harder or more hours than he. 

" One great object in getting up the paper was to promote 
the interests of southern Chautauqua, which it was supposed 
had suffered for want of an organ, and this, instead of party 
politics, was intended to be its leading characteristic. Mr. 
Fletcher, although a man of decided opinions, adhered to 
this platform strictly, taking no part in the controversies 
between the Clintonians and Bucktails, as the leading politi- 
cal parties in the State were then denominated. But this 
position did not long suit the times. The abduction of 
Morgan, and the presidential contest between Jackson and 
Adams, were elements of party strife too strong to admit 
of neutrality ; and a paper for the avowed object of aiding 
the election of Gen. Jackson was started in opposition to the 
'Journal.' This division of support not only lessened his 
income, but imposed new labors and responsibilities on Mr. 
Fletcher. His paper, as a matter of course, came out on the 
other side, and from that time became decidedly political. 
It soon acquired a patronage superior to that it had lost, and 
became a remunerative establishment. After remainino- at 
its head about twenty years, he sold out to his son, from 
whom it soon passed into other hands. 

"After the death of his first wife, Jan. 6, 1836, and just 
thirty years before his death, he married Miss Caroline E. 
Brooks, of Westminster, Ms. Early in life he became a 
member of the Cong, church, of which he was a consistent

ASAPH 5 (1886), b. in Westford, Ms., June 28, 1746. 

The following sketch, written by his son Richard (1912), 
is taken from Benedict's History of the Baptists : 

" He was baptized, and united with the Baptist church in 
Leicester, Mass., 15th of May, 1768, being then almost 
twenty-two years of age. From that day to the day of his 
death, he continued an active and devoted Christian, being 
a period of more than seventy years. At about the age of 
twenty-two, he established himself as a physician in his 
native town of Westford, and pursued this profession with 
signal usefulness and success till the infirmities of great age 
made it necessary for him to retire from active life. 

Beside many other public offices which he held while he 
remained in Massachusetts, he was a member of the conven- 
tion which formed the constitution of that Commonwealth, 
in 1780. In that convention he struggled hard to ingraft 
into the constitution the principle, that no man should be 
compelled by law to pay taxes for the support of preaching, 
but that all such contributions should be voluntary, and 
according to the dictates of conscience. He afterwards suc- 
cessfully advocated, through the press, and maintained this 
principle of religious liberty, in the State of Vermont. 
Though he failed to efiect the object for which he contended 
in the convention, yet he lived to see the principle which he 
maintained carried out in the constitution and laws of Mas- 
sachusetts. On the 3d day of October, 1776, he was 
married to Sally Green, daughter of Jonathan Green, of 
Chelsea, Mass. In Feb. 1787, he removed to Cavendish, 
Vt., where he continued to reside till his death. At the 
time of his removal to Vermont, that State was not a mem- 
ber of the Union, and he was a member of the convention 
which applied to congress for admission. He was shortly 
after a member of a convention to revise the constitution of 
that State. He was frequently a member of the legislature,

for some years one cf the judges of the county court, for 
several years a member of the council, and was one of the 
electors of president and vice-president when Mr. Monroe 
was first elected. He was for a time president of the med- 
ical society of his county, and delivered lectures before that 
body. He held many other offices, not important to men- 
tion, but which manifested the respect in which he was held, 
and the confidence reposed in him. He died peacefully, 
surrounded by a numerous company of afiectionate and 
devoted children and grandchildren, on the 5th of January, 
1839, aged 92 years. His wife, with whom he had lived 
most happily for sixty years, and who still lives in the grate- 
ful and affectionate remembrance of her children and grand- 
children, had deceased a few years before his' own deaths 

He was at all times, in public and in private life, an 
humble and devoted Christian. His advantages for an edu- 
cation in early life were very small, and he was almost wholly 
a self-taught man. Still he made himself quite a respectable 
English scholar, and acquired, without the aid of any teacher, 
a considerable knowledge of the Latin and Greek languages. 
He was thoughtful and serious, and possessed habits of 
patient and persevering investigation. He had a sound and 
well-balanced mind, and uncommon calmness and equanimity 
of temper. He cherished an unwavering faith in an over- 
ruling Providence, which sustained him in the midst of trials, 
and in the darkest hour. He was retiring and unobtrusive, 
without vanity or love of display. His great and constant 
purpose was to fill up life with duty. He lived long and 
lived well."

RICHARD 6 (1912)* was b. in Cavendish, Vt., Jan. 8, 
1778, and his boyhood was passed in his native town, to 
which he always evinced great attachment, although he never 
resided there again after entering Dartmouth College, at the 
age of fourteen. He was graduated in 1806, receiving the 
highest honors. He then went to Salisbury, N. H., and took 
charge of an academy school, commencing at the same time 
the reading of law with Daniel Webster, who then lived 
there, and who m. 1808, Grace Fletcher (764). It is related 
that at the end of his professional studies, the young law3^er 
found himself in debt to Mr. Webster for tuition, and gave 
his promissory note to the amount of five hundred dollars,

FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PABT IX. 173 

iinderstancliiio' that sufficient time should be allowed for earn- 
ing it in his practice. Mr. Webster, however, under some 
financial pressure, sold the note, and its payment was shortly 
demanded. Mr. Fletcher thereupon mounted on horseback, 
rode to Cavendish, Vt., where his father and other friends 
raised the requisite amount, and then with the hard cash in 
saddle-bags, he rode back to his creditor. Continuing in 
Salisbury, he acquired a good practice, and in 1819 rem. to 
Boston, with the capital of an excellent professional reputa- 
tion and a few thousand dollars in money. Here he shortly 
took rank with the very first of legal advocates. We quote 
from a notice that appeared soon after his death, which is, 
no doubt, just: "While in practice before the courts, his 
presence ever commanded the utmost respect. Of good 
form, of handsome and expressive features, and of most gen- 
tlemanly and pleasing address, coupled with his great learn- 
ing and untiring industry, it is not strange that he should 
have succeeded at the bar and on the bench." Another 
notice of him says : " He was an orator of great power, — 
fluent and elegant in diction, bright and sparkling in thought, 
keen and quick in repartee." His care not to be engaged in 
unworthy causes was noted. A lady called one day at his 
office, when the writer was present, and made a long state- 
ment of a lawsuit in which she desired to engage his services, 
and for which she said she was prepared to pay well. After 
hearing her patiently, "Madam," said he, "you would lose 
that suit, and had ought to lose it ; I cannot undertake it." 

In political life, he found little that suited his tastes. He 
was a member of the Mass. legislature, and, in 1837, was 
elected representative in Congress. He again received the 
nomination of the Whig party, which was, at that time, in 
that district, equivalent to a re-election. This he declined, 
as he preferred to devote himself to his profession, and 
especially because life in Congress was so uncongenial to 
him. In 1848, he was appointed judge of the supreme 
court of Mass., and retired from the bench in 1853. The 
degree of LL.D. was conferred by both Harvard and Dart- 
mouth. 

He made a public profession of religion, and united with 
the Federal Street Baptist Church, under the pastoral care 
of Rev. Howard Malcom. He became superintendent of 
the Sunday school, and at one time was choseii deacon. 
Concerning this last it was related : 



174 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — PABT IX. 

" On being informed of the selection, Mr. Fletcher ap- 
peared before the society, and, in one of his happiest moods, 
addressed them. He thanked them for the kindness and 
confidence they had shown him, and then proceeded to give 
them a description of the character and qualifications which 
in his judgment were requisite for the office. Speaking thus 
at length upon the sul)ject of religion and the importance of 
personal piety and sincere devotion to God and the cause of 
the Hedeemer, and having wrought up the attention of his 
hearers to a great interest, he closed by assuring them that 
he did not possess, nor claim to possess, then and there, 
that degree of holiness which the candidate should bring to 
the office. The calls of business, the cares of his profes- 
sion, and the worldliness of his life that had too much 
eniirossecl his attention, rendered it improper for him, how- 
ever much he appreciated the honor, to accept the ofler ; and 
besides, said the speaker, lowering the tones of his voice, 
and throwing into his handsome face all the interest and 
emotion which memory and the occasion called up, " I am 
not worthy ; there is one insurmountable barrier standing 
between me and the position named. Among all the quali- 
fications which I have alluded to, that this officer of the 
church should possess, there is one which I have not named, 
the injunction of Holy Writ, through the apostle, is that the 
deacon ' should be the husband of one wife.' I have noiib. 
I cannot accept the office." , 

His religion was not so much of the aggressive kind, nor 
did he often urge his views upon others ; but it pervaded his 
entire character, and shone out in all his actions. Its rich 
fruits were his kind and loving disposition, with almost the 
tenderness of a child ; the firmness for the right, which no 
force could bend and no money could bribe ; the ever-flowing 
fountain of benevolence that bestowed his wealth to the help 
of many. He was devotional ; private and public worship 
he delighted in. When taken^from his active duties, and 
confined to his bed by sickness, he had read to him, not the 
newspapers and books of the day, but Doddridge and Bax- 
ter. A scrap from his diary is illustrative : 

"Jan. 15, 1857. — Eeceived through the post-office to-day 
a very remarkable letter, in which the writer says that more 
than forty years ago he abstracted twenty-five cents from my 
pocket. He encloses me a dollar and twenty -four cents for 
the money so taken, the interest evidently having been com- 



FLETCEEB GENEALOGY. — PABT IX. 175 

piited at compound interest to make this sum. Speaking of 
the act, the writer says : 'It has harrowed up my soul. O, 
had I thought that God looked on the heart ! ' He expresses 
great compunction, and begs me to forgive him and pray for 
him, that he may be forgiven of God. ... I sincerely 
and heartily forgive the person, whoever he may be, and I 
humbly and earnestly pray God to forgive him for Christ's 
sake, as he seems to be heartily contrite and penitent. How 
many sins I have committed in my life for which I need the 
forgiveness of my fellow men and of my Heavenly Father ! 
' Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass 
against us.' What a proof is here of the power of con- 
science ! Without the pardoning mercy of God through 
Jesus Christ, what may be the tortures of a guilty conscience 
in the world to come ! " 

He never married. His attachment to his relatives was 
remarkable. Tens of thousands of dollars he bestowed upon 
them while he lived. His nephews and nieces he seemed to 
love as if they were his children. His benefactions were 
widely spread. The worthy young man who needed a lift to 
get through college, found in him a friend, and charitable 
societies reckoned surely upon his aid. His will, after pro- 
viding for his relatives, gives to Dartmouth College the resi- 
due. A passage in that will is of interest : 

"In view of the numerous and powerful influences, con- 
stantly active in drawing professed Christians into fatal con- 
formity to the world, both in spirit and practice; in view, 
also, of the lamentable and amazing fact, that Christianity 
exerts so little practical influence, even in countries nomi- 
nally Christian, it has seemed to me that some good might 
be done by making permanent provision for obtaining and 
publishing, once in two years, a prize essay, setting forth 
truths and reasoning calculated to counteract such worldly 
influences, and impressing on the minds of all Christians a 
solemn sense of their duty to exhibit in their godly lives and 
conversation the beneficent effects of the religion they pro- 
fess, and thus increase the efficiency of Christianity in Chris- 
tian countries, and recommend its acceptance to the heathen 
nations of the world." For this purpose, he provides ten 
thousand dollars. 

At the age of eighty-one, he d. June 21, 1869. His 
remains repose at Mount Auburn ; and over them we in- 
quire, — where are the young men of this generation to fill 
the places of those gone before ?

He labored in early life upon his father's farm, receiving 
such education as the district school aiforded in those days. 
Commencing at the age of seventeen, he taught school dur- 
ing the winter months for five years. At his first appearance 
for parade in the militia, he was chosen a sergeant, and after- 
wards held nearly every post to that of brigadier-general. 
He attended for a short time the military school in Nor- 
wich, Vt. 

He was one of the earliest and most efficient laborers in 
the temperance cause. He addressed meetings in various 
parts of the State, and was president of the State temper- 
ance society. At the time he was colonel of a militia regi- 
ment, he called the officers together and procured a vote to 
abolish the custom of "treating" on parade days. He had 
then to encounter bitter opposition and abuse ; but he has 
lived to see a law prohibiting the sale of the destructive 
poison effectually enforced in his State, and never likely 
be repealed. 

In 1837, he took \\\) the antislavery cause, and was its 
untiring champion, until Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that 
slavery was no more. 

He was elected in 1854 lieut.-gov., and in 1856, governor 
of the State of Vermont, and held the latter office two 

23

years. He was elector of pres. and vice-pres. of the U. S. 
in 1864, and was delegate to two national conventions for 
the nomination of pres. and vice-pres. of the U. S. 

A member of the Bapt. church, he has taken great inter- 
est in the moW and religious improvement of the people, 
especially by the promotion of Sunday schools. 

He has cultivated, almost during his life, the farm where 
his father settled, and he now lives in the old mansion which 
his father built on Black Eiver, a little below Proctorsville. 

As a speaker, his manner is pleasing and persuasive, though 
his voice is not very full or clear. His style is logical, and 
full of illustration, without any apparent effort for effect.

family in extreme poverty. He was but a mere child when 
he was bound out to a farmer to serve during his minority, 
and he fliithfully served out his whole time. The following 
is his own account, written when over eighty years of age, 
of a journey to New York city in 1792 : 

"At the age of twenty-three, I set out to find my long- 
absent brother Daniel. On foot and alone, at the rate of 
fifty miles a day, I travelled until I arrived at Bridgeport, 
Ct., where for the first time I found myself on board a sail- 
ing craft. Arriving at Hellgate, the old sea captains, on 
learning that there was a raw Yankee on board, were dis- 
posed to have some sport ; but there being on board a num- 
ber of families moving to New York on the first day of May, 
no action took place." 

In 1803, he went to Lincolnville, Me., and taught school, 
and the same year m. Mary L. Brown, of that place. Here 
he bought a farm and lived more than sixty years, and d. 
Aug. 21, 1864, ae. eighty-five. "Not too old," he said, "to

The first meeting-house at Wilton, N.H.,was built in 
1752. It was an inconsiderable building, used about twenty- 
one years and then demolished. The second meeting house 
which is now standing is a very decent, commodious building. 
At the raising of this meeting-house, Sept. 7, 1773, a dis- 
tressing accident h:ippened. When the frame was nearly 
completed, in consequence of the failure of a supporting 
timber, one of the beams broke and fell, and several men 
being on it at the same time fell with it, three of whom, 
George Lancey, Simeon Fletcher, and Eeuben Stiles, were 
instantly killed. [Farmer dc Moore's Hist. Coll. of JST. II.,

The following are the first six of forty stanzas composed 
by Nathaniel Allen, and published on the occasion.

" Narrative of the Captivity and Sufferings of Ebenezer Fletcher, 
of New Ipswich, who was severely wounded and taken prisoner 
at the battle of Hubbardston, Vt., in the year 1777, by the 
British and Indians, at the age of 16 years ; after recovering in 
part, made his escape from the enemy, and travelling through a 
dreary wilderness, followed by wolves, and beset by tories on 
his way, who threatened to take him back to the enemy, but 
made his escape from them all, and arrived safe home. Written 
by himself, and published at the request of his friends. Fourth 
edition, revised and enlarged. New-Ipswich, N. H. Printed 
by S. Wilder, 1827." 

I, Ebenezer Fletcher, enlisted into the Continental Array, in 
Capt. Carr's Company, in Col. Nathan Hale's Regiment, as a fifer, 
and joined the Army at Ticonderoga, under the command of Gen. 
St. Clair, in the spring of 1777, at which place I was stationed till 
the retreat of the Army on the Gth of July following. 

Early on the morning of the same day, orders came to strike 
our tents and swing our packs. It was generally conjectured that 
we were going to battle ; but orders came immediately to march. 
We marched some distance before light. By sunrise the enemy 
had landed from their boats, and pursued us so closely as to fire 
on our rear. A large body of the enemy followed us all day, but 
kept so far behind as not to be wdiolly discovered. Their aim was 
to attack us suddenly next morning, as they did. 

Having just recovered from the measles, and not being able to 
march with the main body, I fell in the rear. The morning after 
our retreat, orders came very early for the troops to refresh and be 
ready for mai-chiug. Some w^ere eating, some Avere cooking, and 
all in a very unfit posture for battle. Just as the sun rose, there 
was a cry, " the enemy are upon us" Looking round I saw the 
enemy in line of battle. Orders came to lay do^vn our packs and 
be ready for action. The fire instantl}^ began. We were but few 
in number compared to the enemy. At the commencement of the 
battle, many of our party retreated back into the woods. Capt. 
Carr came up and says, " My lads advance, we shall beat them 
yet." A few of us followed him in view of the enemy. Every 
man was trying to secure himself behin<l girdled trees, which were 
standing on the place of action. I made shelter for myself and 



FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — APPEXDIX C. 251 

discharged 1113^ piece. Having loaded again and taken aim, my 
piece missed fire. I bronght the same a second time to my face ; 
bnt before I had time to discharge it, I received a musket ball in 
the small of my back, and fell with my gun cocked. My uncle, 
Daniel Foster, standing but little distance from me, I made out to 
crawl to him and spoke to him. He and another mnn lifted me 
and carried me back some distance and laid me down behind a 
large tree, where was another man crying out most l)itterly witli a 
grievous wound. By this time I had bled so freely, I was very 
weak and faint. I observed the enemy were like to gain the 
gi'ound. Our men began to retreat and the enemy to advance. 
Having no friend to afford me any relief, every one taking care of 
himself, all things looked very shocking to me ; to remain where I 
was and fall into the hands of the enemj^, especially in the condi- 
tion I Avas in, expecting to receive no mercy, it came into my mind 
to conceal myself from them if possible. I made use of my hands 
and knees, as well as I could, and crawled about two rods among 
some small brush, and got under a log. Here I lay concealed from 
the enemy, who came instantly to the place I lay wounded at. 
What became of my distressed partner I know not. The enemy 
pursued our men in great haste. Some of them came over the log 
where I lay. Some came so near I could almost touch them. I 
was not discovered hj the enemy till the battle was over. ^\'hen 
they were picking up the dead and wounded among the brush and 
logs, I heard them coming towards me, and began to be much ter- 
rified, lest I should be found. I flattered myself that our men 
would come back after the battle was over and take me off ; but to 
my great surprise, two of the enemy came so nigh, I heard one of 
them say, "• Here is one of the rebels." I la}^ flat on my fiice 
across my hands, rolled in my blood. I dared not stir, being afraid 
they meant me, by saying, " here is one of the rebels." They 
soon came to me, and pulled oft' my shoes, supposing me to be 
dead I looked up and spoke, telling them I was their prisoner, 
and begged to be used well. " Damn you," sa3'S one, " you de- 
serve to be used well, don't j'ou ? "What's such a ,young rebel as 
)^ou fighting for ? " One of these men was an oflScer, who appeared 
to be a prett}'^ sort of a man He spoke to the soldier, who had 
taken my shoes, and sa^'S, " Give back the shoes and help the man 
into camp." M}^ shoes were given back hj the soldier according 
to order. The soldier then raised me upon mj^ feet, and conducted 
me to the British camp. Here I found a number of my brother 
soldiers in the same situation as myself. I was laid on the ground 
and remt.ined in this posture till the afternoon, before mj^ wound 
was dressed. Two Doctors came to my assistance. The_y raised 
me up, and examined mj^ back. One of them said, " My lad, you 
stood a narrow chauce ; had the ball gone in or out half its big- 
ness, you must have been killed instantly." I asked him if he 
thought there was any prospect of my getting well again. IJe 



252 FLETCHER GEXEALOaY. — APPENDIX G. 

answered, " There is some prospect " I concluded by his reply, 
he considered ray case hazardous. The Doctors appeared to be 
very kind and faithful. They pulled several pieces of my clothes 
from my wound, which were forced in by the ball I received. 

Some of the enemy were very kind, while others were very spiteful 
and malicious. One of them came and took my silver shoe-buckles 
and left me an old pair of brass ones, and said exclianqe loas no 
robbery; but I thought it robbery at a high rate. Another came 
and took off my neck handkerchief. An old negro came and took 
my fife, which I considered as the greatest insult I had received 
while with the enemy. The Indians often came and abused me 
with their language, — calling us Yankees and rebels, — but they 
were not allowed to injure us. I was stripped of everything valu- 
able about me. 

The enemy soon marched back to Ticonderoga, and left only a 
few to take care of the wounded. I was treated as well as I could 
expect. Doctor Haze was the head doctor, and he took true care 
that the prisoners were well treated. Doctor Blocksom, an under 
surgeon, appeared to be very kind indeed ; he was the one who had 
the care of me. He never gave me any insulting or abusive lan- 
guage : he sometimes would say, " Well, my lad, think you'll be 
willing to list in the King's service if you should get well ? " My 
answer was always no. The officers would flatter me to list in 
their service ; telling me they were very sure to conquer the couu- 
tr}^, since they had got our strongest post. I told them I should 
not list. 

But among all the troubles I met with, I received particular 
favors from two of the British. This conduct appeared to me very 
remarka])le ; why or wherefore it should be, I knew not ; but Ho 
who hath the hearts of all men in his hands, gave me favor in their 
sight. Tlicy would often visit me, and asked me if I wanted any- 
thing to eat or drink. If I did, I had it. The first time one of 
these friends came to me was soon after I was brought to the 
camp. 

As I lay on the ground, he. asked me if I did not want a bed to 
lie on : I told him I did. He went and got a large hemlock bark, 
and finding many old coats and overalls, taken from the dead and 
wounded, he put them in the bark, made me a bed, aud laid me 
into it. He built a shelter over me with barks, to keep the rain 
from me, which was a great kindness, as it rained exceeding hard 
the next night. He went to a spring, and brought me water as 
often as I wanted, which was very often, being very dry, my loss 
of blood occasioning much thirst. He asked me, also, if I wanted 
to eat. I answered, yes ; for having eat but little that day, I was 
very faint and hungry''. He told me he did not know as it was in 
his power to procure anything for me, but would go and try. After 
an absence of considerable time (certainly the time seemed long) 
he returned with a piece of broiled pork and broiled liver, telling 



FLETCHER GENEALOGY. — APPENDIX C. 253 

me this was all the food he could get. I thanked huu, and told 
him it was very good. 

The next day, he came and told me he had orders to march, and 
must therefore leave me. Was very sorry he could stay no longer 
with me, but hoped somebody would take care of me. Taking me 
by the hand, he wished me well and left me. 

The loss of so good a friend grieved me exceedingly ; but I soon 
heard that m}^ other friend was ordered to stay behind to help tdko, 
care of the wounded. My spirits, whicli before were very much 
depressed, when I heard of this, were much exhilerated, and once 
more I felt tolerably happy. The difference in mankind never 
struck me more sensibly than while a prisoner. Some would do 
everything in their power to make me comfortable and cheerful, 
while others abused me with the vilest of language ; telling me 
that the prisoners would all be hanged ; that they would drive all 
the damned rebels into the sea, and that their next winter quarters 
would be in Boston, They certainly wintered in Boston ; but, to 
their great disappointment and chagrin, as prifioners of war ! 

But to return. My wound being now a little better, I began to 
think of escaping from the enemy. Two of my fellow-prisoners 
agreed to accompany me, — one of them being well acquainted with 
the way to Otter Creek. This plan, however, failed ; for before we 
had an opportunity for making our escape. Doctor Haze called 
upon my companions to be ready to march for Ticonderoga, telling 
them that the next morning they must leave this place. Thus I 
found, that as soon as the prisoners were able to ride, they were 
ordered to Ticonderoga. Being thus disappointed, I begged of the 
Doctor to let me go with them. Says he, " You are very danger- 
ously wounded, and it is improper for you to ride so far yet, but as 
soon as you are able you shall go." Being thus defeated, I again 
resolved to run away, even if I went alone ; and it was not long 
before I had an opportunity. As all the prisoners were sent off 
except such as were badly wounded, they thought it unnecessary to 
guard us very closely. I soon was able to go to the spring, which 
was at a little distance from the camp. Thither I often went for 
water for myself and the Hessians, who, by the way, a[)peared to 
be pleased with me. I often waited upon them, brought them 
water, made their beds, etc., and found my fare the better for it. 
I often Avalked out into the woods where the battle was fought ; 
went to the tree where I was shot clown, observed the trees which 
were very much marked with the balls. Looking around one day, 
I found some leaves of a Bible ; these I carried into the camp, and 
diverted myself by reading them; for I felt much more contented 
when I had sometJiing to read. My friend, wliom I have before 
mentioned, one day brought me a very good book, which he told 
me to keep as a present from him. This I heartily thanked him 
for, and whenever I was tired by walking, would lay down and 
read. 



254 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY.— APPENDIX C. 

On the 2'2U of July, a number of meu came tlowu from Ticonde- 
roga, with horses and litters sufiicient to carry off the remainder of 
the wounded. Dr. Haze came to us and told us, that to-morrow 
we should all be carried where we should have better care taken of 
us. Says he, " I will send the orderly sergeant, who will see that 
your bloody clothes are well washed." This, he thought, would be 
Tery agreeable news to us. I pretended to be very much pleased, 
tHougli I was determined never to go. I told the person Avho lay 
next to me that I intended to run away ; desired him to make them 
believe I had taken the north road, if they inclined to pursue me, 
for I should take the south. Says he, "■! will do all in ni}^ power 
to assist you, and wish it Avas possible for me to go with you." 

I made it my business that day to procure provisions sufficient 
for my journey. I had spared a little bread from m}^ daily allow- 
ance, and although dry and mouldy, yet it was the best to be had. 
I had a large jack-knife left, of which the enemy had not robbed 
me. I sold this for a pint of wine, thinking it would do me more 
good on my march than the knife — as the event proved. The wine 
I put in a bottle, and carefully stowed it in my pocket. I was hard 
put to it to get my shirt washed and dried before evening. How- 
ever, agreeing Avith some to make their l)eds if they would dry my 
shirt, it Avas ready to put on by dark. I then Avent to my tent, took 
otf m}' coat and jacket, and put on ni}^ clean shirt o\a>r my dirty 
one, and having filled my pockets Avith the little provision I had 
saved, I began to march homeward, shoeless, reflecting what I 
should do for so material a part of my clothing. It came into my 
mind that one Jonathan Lambert had died of his Avounds a day or 
two before, and left a good pair of shoes. Supposing my right to 
them equal to any other person, I took them and put them on. 

It being dark, I Avent out undiscovered, and steered into the 
woods, After going a little way, I turned into the road and made 
a halt, NoAV was the tr^nng scene ! The night being very dark, 
ever^^hing before me appeared gloomj^ and discouraging ; my 
wound was far from being healed ; my strength much reduced by 
the loss of blood, pain, and poor living. Thus situated, to travel 
alone, I knew not Avhere, having no knoAvledge of the way, I thought 
would be highly presumptuous How far I should have to travel 
before I could reach any inhabitants, I could not tell. Indians, I 
supposed, were lurking about, and probably I might be beset by 
them and murdered, or carried back ; and if I avoided them, per- 
haps I might perish in the Avilderness. 

Reflecting upon these things, my resolution began to flag, and I 
thought it most prudent to return and take i\\\ fate. I turned 
about and went back a fcAV rods, when the folloAving words struck 
me as if Avhispered in my ear : Fut not your hands to the 2>lough a)id 
luck bade. I immediately turned about again, fully resolved to 
pursue my journej^ tlu'ough the Avoods ; but before morning, had I 
been possessed of millions of gold, I Avould freely have given the 



FLETGHEB GENEALOGY, — APPENDIX G. 255 

whole to have been once more with the enemy. The road which I 
had to travel was newly opened, leading from Hubbardston to Otter 
Creek. The night being dark, and the road very crooked, I found 
it very difficult to keep it ; often running against trees and rocks, 
before I knew I was out of it, and then it was with milch trouble 
that I found it again, which sometimes I was obliged to do upon 
my hands and knees, and often up to my knees in mire. 

About twelve o'clock, I heard something coming towards me : 
what it could be, I knew not. I halted and looked back ; it was so 
dark I was at a loss to determine what it was, but thought it looked 
like a dog. That a dog should be so far from inhabitants, I 
thought very strange. I at once concluded that he belonged to the 
Indians, and that they were not far off. I however ventured to 
speak to him, and he immediately came to me. I gave him a piece 
of mouldy bread, which he eat, and soon appeared fond of me. At 
first, I was afraid he would betray me to the Indians, but soon 
found him of service ; for I had not gone far before I heard the 
noise of some wild beast. I had just set down to rest me, with my 
back against a tree, my wound being very painful, As the beast 
approached, my dog appeared very much frightened, — laid close 
down by me, and trembled as if he expected to be torn in pieces. 
I now began to be much terrified : I however set very still, know- 
ing it would do no good to run. He came within two rods of me, 
and stopped. I was unable to determine what it was, but supposed 
it was a wolf. I soon found I was not mistaken. After looking 
at me some time, he turned about and went otf ; but, before long, 
returned with a large reinforcement. In his absence, I exerted 
myself to the utmost to get lorward, fearing he Avould be after me 
again. After travelling about half an hour, I was alarmed with 
the most horrible howling, which I supposed to be near the tree 
which I rested by. Judge what my feelings were, when I found 
these beasts of prey were pursuing me, and expected every minute 
to be devoured by them ! But, in the midst of this trouble, to my 
infinite joy, I discovered fires but a little way before me, which, 
from several ch'cumstanees, I was sure were not built by Indians. 
I therefore at once concluded they were fires of some scouting party 
of Americans, and I made great haste to get to them, lest I should 
be overtaken by tlie wolves, which were now but a little l)ehind. 
I approached so near the fires as to hear men taUv, when I imme- 
diately discovered them to be enemies. Thus disappointed, I knew 
not what course to take. If I continued in the woods, I should be 
devoured by wild beasts ; for, having eat of the bodies which were 
left on the field of battle, the^^ continued lurking for more. If I 
gave myself up to the enemy, I should certainly be carried back 
to Ticouderoga, and to Canada, and probably fare no better for 
attempting to run aAvay. Which way to escape, I knew not. I 
turned a little out of the path, and lay down on the ground to hear 
what was said by the enemy, expecting every moment they would 



256 FLETCHEIi OENEALOGT. — APPENDIX C. 

discover me : the darkness of the night, however, prevented. Tliese 
howling beasts approached as near the fires as they dared, when 
they halted, and continued their horrid yells for some time, — being 
afraid to come so nigh as I was. After the howling had ceased, I 
began to think of getting ronnd the enemy's camp, being pretty 
certain that, as yet, I was not discovered. I arose from the ground, 
and took a course which I thought would carry me round the ene- 
my's camp. After travelling a little way, I came to the foot of a 
high mountain. To go round it, I thought would carry me too 
much out of my course ; I resolved, therefore, to ascend it. With 
much difficulty, I arrived at the top, then took a tack to the right : 
travelling that course some time, I found I was bewildered and 
lost ; and which way to go to find the road again, I knew not, hav- 
ing neitlier moon nor stars to direct me ; so I wandered about in 
this wilderness till almost day, when I became so fatigued and 
"worried that I was obliged to la}^ down again. Jitdge what a per- 
son's feeling's must be in such a situation ! 

I now repented of my ever leaving the enemy. Here I was lost 
in the woods, with but very little provision, my wounds extremely 
painful, and little or no jirospect of ever seeing human beings again. 
Thus I lay and i-eflected, my dog walking round me like a faithful 
sentinel, till I fell asleep ; but was soon alarmed Avith the noise of 
cannon, which I concluded, by the direction, must be at Ticonde-' 
roga. Never was sound more grateful to my eai's than this cannon. 
I thouglit I might possibly live to reach the place, and though an 
enemy's camp, I would have given anything to be with them again. 

Soon after the morning gun was fired, I heard the drums beat 
in the camp which I had visited in th^ night. This noise was still 
more grateful, for I was sure they were not at a gTeat distance. 
With much difficulty, I got upon my legs again, o'ith a detennina- 
tion to go to their camp. I found, however, that I could scarcely 
stand ; for, having laid down when I was very sweaty, I had taken 
cold, and was so stiff and sore that I could hardly move. I now 
had recourse to my little bottle of wine, which relieved me veiy 
much, and then began to march towards the di'ums, which still 
continued beating. 

After travelling a little wa}^ I heard a cock crow, which ap- 
peared near the drums. I thought it of little consequence which 
object to pursue, both being nearly in the same direction. But the 
noise of the drums soon ceased, and I steered for the other object, 
which soon brought me into open land, and in sight of a house. I 
got to the door just as the man arose from his bed. After the 
usual compliments, I asked him how far it was to the British en- 
campments. He answered, al)out fifty rods. "Do you want to go 
to them?" says he. I never was more at a stand what reply to 
make. As none of the enemy api)eared about the liouse, I tliought 
if I could persuade this man to befriend me, I jiossiltly miglit avoid 
them ; but if he should i)rove to jje a tory, and know from whence 



FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — APPENDIX C. 257 

I came, he would certainly betray me. I stood perhaps a minute 
without sa^aug a word. He seeing my confusion, spoke again to 
me : " Come," said he, "come into the house." I went in and sat 
down. I will tell you, said I, what I want, if you will promise not 
to hurt me. He replied, " I will not injure you, if you do not 
injure us." This answer did not sati^ify me, for, as yet, I could 
not tell whether he would be a friend or foe. I sat and viewed him 
for some minutes, and at last resolved to tell him from whence I 
came, and where I wished to go, let the event be what it would. I 
was a soldier, said I, iu the 'Continental army, was dangerously 
wounded and taken prisoner, had made ray escape from the enemy, 
and, after much fatigue and peril, had got tlu'ough the woods, — 
'being directed to this house by the crowing of a cock. He smiled, 
and said, " You have been rightly directed ; for had you gone to 
either of my neighbors, you undoubtedly would have l3een carried 
to the enemy again. You have now found a friend who will, if 
possible, protect you. It is true they have forced me to take the 
oath of allegiance to the king ; but I sincerely hope the Americans 
will finally prevail, for I believe their cause to be just and equitable. 
Should they know of my harboring rebels, as they call us, I cer- 
tainly should suffer for it. An3^thing I can do for you without 
exposing my own life, I will do." I thanked him for his kindness, 
and. desired him not to expose himself on my account. 

After giA^ing me something to eat and di'inlc, he concealed me in 
a chamber, where he said I might stay till the dew was off, and 
then go out into some secret place in the bushes, there to continue 
till night. This he said was necessary, as the enemy were often 
plundering about his house, and if I continued in it, I should prob- 
ably be discovered, which would ruin him. A little boy was set as 
a sentinel at the door, who was to give notice if the enemy came 
near. I had not been in the house half an hour, before a number 
of them came in, but with no other design than to buy some rum 
and milk, and to borrow a pot for cooking. 

As soon as they were gone, the woman came into the chamber 
to dress my wound. She washed it with rum, applied dressings, 
and bomid it up as well as she could. She showed every mark of 
kindness to me ; but her husband, whose name was Moulton, in a 
day or two after I got to his house, was pressed by the enemy to 
bring stores from Skeensborough [now White Hall] with his team, 
and I never saw the good old man any more. His wife was in 
much trouble lest the enemy should find me in the house and be so 
enraged as to kill all the ifamily. She permitted her little boy to 
guide me to the bushes, where I might secrete myself: she gave 
me a blanket to lie on. The boy went with me to my lurking 
place, that I might be easily found, so as to receive refreshment. 
When night came on, I was called by the boy to the house again, 
and took my old stand in the chamber ; the woman feared I should 
receive injury by lodging out of doors. She informed me that a 

33 



258 FLETCHER GENEALOGY.— APPENDIX C. 

man Tvould lodge there that night who was brother-in-law to her 
husband, and Avho had actually taken up arms against his country. 
I told her I apprehended danger from tarrying in the house ; she 
said there would not be any ; I then lay snug in my sti'aw. 

In a short time, the tory came for some drink. The indiscreet 
woman told him she had an American in the chamber who had been 
taken prisoner by the British and had escaped. He asked her what 
kind of a man I was. She told him I was a young fellow, and wanted 
much to get home, and begged that I might not be taken back to 
the enemy or betrayed. His answer 'was very rough, and I began 
to think I was gone for it. I expected to be forced back, but the 
woman interceding so hard for me, softened the ferocity of my tory 
enemy. Knowing I was discovered, I crawled from my hiding 
place, and began a couA^ersation with the man. He asked me if I 
belonged to the rebel service. I told him I belonged to the Conti- 
nental service. "What is that," said he, "but the rebel service ?" 
He addressed me in very insolent language, and said he was veiy 
sorry to have me leave the king's troops in the maimer I had done, 
and he would have me to know I was in his hands. I was patient 
and mild in my situation, telling him I was at his disposal. My 
good mistress often put in a Avord on m^^ behalf. 

After some time spent in this way, the man asked me if he 
should chance to be taken, and in my power as I was in his, whether 
I should let him escape. I told him I should. "Then," says he, 
" if jow will promise this, I will not detain you ; also, that if yo\x 
are retaken before you reach home, j^ou will not inform that j'ou 
have seen me, or have been at my brother's." I gaA^e him my 
promise. His adAice to me was immediately to set out, for if I 
should stay long I might be picked up by some person. "And," 
says he, " I advise you to traA^el in the night, and hide in the da}', 
for many A'olunteers are reconnoitering up and down the countr3\" 
I concluded to traA'el, but my feeling landlady thought it best to stay 
a few days longer. M}^ friend tory said it was best for me to traA^el 
as soon as possible. " If 3'ou are determined to go to-night," said 
the woman, " I Avill dress jowx wound, and give j'ou food for j'our 
iourney." I told her I would go as soon as possible. She then 
dressed my wound for the last time, and filled mj^ pockets with 
good provision. After thanking her for her kindness, — it being 
all the compensation I could make, and I believe all that she de- 
sired, — I left her. 

But, before I proceed on my journej', I must tell you that my 
dog, who had accompanied me through many dangers, I was 
obliged to drive from me. Wlien in the chamber, he would com- 
monly lay at the foot of the stairs. Mrs. Moulton often told me 
she was afraid he would betray me ; for, as the enemy were often 
in, should they see the dog, might suspect that somebody was in 
the chamber. I told her, with much regret, to driA^e him away. 
She, with her little boy, tried all in then* power to get rid of him, 



FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — APPENDIX C. 259 

but in vain ; the dog would stay about the house. At length, she 
called me to drive him away. I came down, and, after much diffi'- 
culty, efFecte(4it. 

But to return. After being told the course I must take, I began 
my journey in the night, which was dark and cloudy, through the 
woods. 1 had not travelled more than two hours before I got lost. 
I concluded I had missed the road, and, having reached the end of 
one I was then in, began to think of going back. My wound 
began to be very painful, and I was so sore I could scarcely go. 
While I was seeking for the road again, there came up a thunder 
shower, and rained fast. I crawled into an old, forsaken hovel, 
which was near, and lay till the shower was over ; then went back 
half a mile, and found the road once more. The road being newly 
opened through the woods, was very bad, and it was with much 
difficulty I could get along, often tumbling over roots and stones, 
and sometimes up to my knees in mii'C. I once fell, and was 
obliged to lay several minutes before I could recover myself. 

About twelve o'clock at night, as I was walking in this wilder- 
ness, I was surprised by two large, wild animals, which lay close , 
by the road, and started up as soon as they saw me ; ran a few 
rods, and turned about towards me. Whether they wei'e bears or 
wolves, I could not tell ; I was, however, exceedingly terrified, and 
wovild have given any thing for my dog again. One of them fol- 
lowed me for a long time ; sometimes would come close to me, and 
at others, kept at a considerable distance. At last, he got dis- 
couraged and left me, and certainly I did not regret his absence. 

At daylight, T came to open land, and discovered a house be- 
longing to Col. Mead. I was not a little rejoiced to see his house, 
as I knew he would be a friend to me ; but my joy was of short 
continuance, for as soon as I looked into the door, I saw marks of 
the enemy, everything belonging to the house being carried ofi" or 
destroj^ed. I thought it not prudent to go into the house, lest some 
of the enemy might be within, so I passed on as fast as possible. 
It now began to grow light, and what to do with myself I could not 
tell. My friends had advised me to lay concealed in the day-time 
and travel in the night. 

Wlien I viewed the depredations the enemy had made on the 
inhabitants, — and many of whom had fled ; not knowing how far 
I must travel to find friends, and my wound being very trouble- 
some, I reflected long, whether to tarry and be made prisoner, or 
push forward thi'ough a di'eary wilderness. Death seemed to 
threaten me on all sides : however, I collected resolution sufficient 
to make to the east. I conceived myself exposed by my uniform 
and bloody clothes. To prevent a discovery b}^ any who should be 
an enemy, I took off my shirt and pat it over my coat, by which 
my uniform was covered. In this line I marclied ; it being the 
orders of the British for all tories,who came to join them, to appear 
in this di'ess, I considered myself protected. 



260 FLETCHEB GENEALOGY. — APPENDIX G. 

I travelled till the middle of the day, before I saw any person. 
I then met a man driviaig cattle, as I supposed, to the enem)\ He 
examined me closel}', and inquired if I Avas furnishej^ vAih. a pass. 
I gave him plausible answers to all his questions, and so far satis- 
fied him as to proceed unmolested. I inquired of him if he knew 
one Joshua Priest- He told me he did, and very readily directed 
me to the place where he lived. Leaving this man, I had not 
travelled far before I met a number more, armed ; being within 
about fifty rods of them, I thought to hide myself, but found I could 
not : I then made towards them without any apparent fear. Com- 
ing up to them, I expected a strict examination ; but they only 
asked me how fur it was to such a toAvn. I informed them as well 
as I could, and pushed on my way. 

Being within a mile and a half of said Priest's, I saw two men 
making towards me ; they came to a fence and stopped. I heard 
them say, "Let's examine this fellow, and know what his business 
is." One of them asked me where I was going. I told him to 
Joshua Priest's. He asked me my business there. I answered 
him, upon no bad errand. He says, " You are a spy." I told him 
I was no spy. I did not like the fellow's looks, therefore dropped 
the conversation with him, believing he was one of the enemy. I 
resolved not to converse with any one, till I had arrived at Priest's, 
unless compelled to. Being almost overcome with fatigue, I wished 
for rest ; however, these men seemed determined to stop me or do 
me some mischief, for when I walked on, they followed me upon 
the run, and in great rage told me I should go no farther until I 
had made known to them who and what I was ; sa3dng, they had 
asked me a civil question, and they reqitired a civil answer. I told 
them if they would go to Priest's, I would tell them all the truth, 
and satisfy them entirely, — repeating to them I was no sp3^ They 
said they did not mean to leave me till they were satisfied respect- 
ing me. I then, in short, told them what I had before in the whole, 
and added, that I was well acquainted with Priest, and intended to 
tarry with him some time. 

We all arrived at Priest's, who at first did not recollect me. 
After some pause, he told me he was surprised to see me, as my 
father had informed him I was slain at Hubbardston. I told him I 
was yet alive, but had received a bad wound. His family soon 
dressed my wound, and made me comfortable. 

I then, in the presence and hearing of my tory followers, told 
Priest the story of m}^ captivity and escape ; also repeated the 
insolent language used by the tories towards our people when 
prisoners with the enemy. Finding Priest my friend, I said many 
severe things against the tories, and fixed my countenance sternly 
on those fellows who had pretended to lord it over me, and stop me 
on the way. They bore all without sa} ing a word, but looked as 
srirly as hulls. 

I soon found these tory gentry had premeditated canning me 



FLETCHER GENEALOGY.— APPENDIX C. 261 

back, and were seeking help to prosecute theii- design. My friend 
Priest loaded his gun, and said he would give them a grist if they 
dared come after me : but failing of getting any persons to join 
them, I was not molested. 

I could often hear my tory followers' threatenings against me, 
to take me back, sajdng I should be able to fight again, and do 
injury to the enemy. I feared these tories would do hurt ; but my 
fears were quieted by finding the neighbors were m^^ friends, and 
would afibrd me then- protection. But I will write one more tory 
plan. 

After being at Priest's about ten days, there came, one morn- 
ing, a number of persons to see me, and appeared very friendly 
and much concerned lest I should be taken by the enemy. They 
informed me a man had arrived from Burgoyne's army, and a 
party of Indians was to be sent forward to guard the town where I 
was, and protect the tories and their property, — our people coming 
twice while I was at Priest's to take tory property. These people 
told me an honest stor}^, and advised me to travel immediately. 
Being desirous to get home, I told my friend Priest I would not 
stay any longer. He says, "Don't be scared, I apprehend no 
danger from the Indians, tarry j^et awhile, for your wound is not 
healed. You are not able to travel through the woods ; but do as 
3"ou think best." These men cried out, "Escape, escape, for your 
life : Indians will be upon you before to-morrow night." 

Having resolved to go on, my friends furnished me with provis- 
ions sufficient for my journey. Without doubts or fears, I went 
on my way ; and after travelling all day, I arrived at a place called 
Ludlow. From this town the people all fled and left their habita- 
tions. Great was my disappointment ! I spent the night in a 
melancholy manner, having neither fire nor bed to comfort my 
shivering and impaired bod3^ 

About dajT^, I set out from the dreary house which had sheltered 
me in the night. By travelling, I found I had taken cold, and my 
wound was very painful Desponding, I thought it best to go back 
about seven miles to some inhabitants, rather than to proceed 
homeward. Just before night, I arrived at the place of the inhabit- 
ants, seven miles back, who received me kindly, and took special 
care of my wound. 

Just before sunset of the third day after my departure, I came 
to my old friend Priest's again, who appeared very glad to see me. 
Now it was not any friendship in my tory visitors who advised me 
to escape, but for fear I should betra}^ them, — their reports after- 
wards proving a lie. 

At my old friends I remained six weeks : in the meantime my 
wound was almost healed. I was hospitably entertained by him. 

Having heard that one Mr. Atwell, belonging to New Marlbo- 
rough, was in the neighborhood with a team to move a famil}^, I 
agreed with him for a horse to ride. After a journey of a few 



262 FLIlTCHEn GENEALOGY.— APPENDIX C. 

days, I safely an-ived at New Ipswich, and once more participated 
the pleasure of seeing and enjoj'ing my friends, and 7io enemy to 
make me afraid. 

Not long afterguards, an officer from the army hearing of my 
retinni, ordered me to be arrested and returned to the main body of 
the American army, although my wound was scarcely healed. In 
a few weeks, I joined my corps, then stationed in Pennsylvania, 
having yet two years to serve my country in the tented field. 

We afterwards went on an expedition against the Indians, to 
the Genesee country, a long and tedious march, commanded by 
Gen. 8\illivan, where we drove the savages before us, burnt their 
huts, destroyed their corn. The fii'st Indian settlement we came to 
was called "Tiauger," where they lay in ambush, in a thick wood 
on a hill, where they fired on our men and killed seven. After 
that, we were ordered to march in the following order : The army 
was divided into four columns, and the head of each column had a 
horn or trumpet, and each of these divisions marched as far apart 
as they could hear each other sound. We marched in this line all 
the way afterward ; if we had not, they undoubtedly would have 
waylaid and killed us all. There were two men that left their 
place and went out from the main body and were talcen by the 
Indians and tortured to death in the most cruel manner. 

Our provision was like to fail : we had to go on half allowance 
a long time, or we should have starved. Finding' few enemies to 
contend with in that quarter, as they were not disposed to meet us 
in the open field, we received the gladly-obeyed orders to return 
to New England, where we remained the ensuing autumn. Noth- 
ing more of importance, to me or the reader, occurred, until the 
three long years rolled away, except when in Pennsylvania, I had 
the honor of being acquainted with Gen. Washington and Gen. 
Lafayette, and then I received my discharge [March 30, 1780]. 

And now, kind reader, wishing that you may forever remain 
ignorant of the real suflerings of the veteran soldier from hunger 
and cold, from sickness and captivity, I bid you a cordial adieu.
